The City of Healdsburg is located 65 miles north of San Francisco on Highway 101 in the heart of Sonoma County wine country and nestled among three lush valleys. Incorporated in 1867, Healdsburg’s 4.1 square miles is surrounded by over 60 wineries and their beautiful vineyards, including some of Northern California’s finest regional appellations. Healdsburg retains a small-town ambience in the grandeur of a European countryside while providing easy access to the amenities of a large metropolitan area.
The City’s approximate 12,500 residents enjoy a lively, appealing downtown experience centered around the Spanish-style Healdsburg Plaza—a shopping, dining, and art gallery hub for visitors and residents. The plaza represents one of the few examples of early California town planning. Historic storefronts and homes enhance the sense of Healdsburg’s rich heritage and community events throughout the year and ground the city’s family-oriented sensibility. The wine industry is a driving economic force providing jobs, visitor appeal, and an attractive lifestyle for the community. Numerous businesses and industries benefit including retail, restaurant, and lodging which help boost Healdsb...urg’s attraction as a visitor destination. Other industries including agriculture, manufacturing, healthcare and technology, round out the city’s economic base.
The region has relatively mild year-round temperatures which allows for varied outdoor recreational opportunities. Healdsburg is probably most beloved by cycling enthusiasts. The city offers enrichment opportunities throughout the year for both children and adults, while nature lovers can enjoy picnics under the redwoods in one of the city’s many parks. Swimming, canoeing, and fishing along the nearby Russian River or taking a hot-air balloon ride over the valley are other highly desirable outdoor activities. A short drive outside the city leads to the Pacific Coast’s beaches to hike and watch for migratory whales or to San Francisco for the large city shopping, art and cultural experience. The scenic beauty of the area and safe neighborhoods provide an unmatched setting for raising a family or simply settling into a more balanced way of life.
